Episode #4: Great Whites, Sea Turtles, Dolphins: Life As An Aquarist

In this episode, I speak with senior aquarist Krissy who has over a decade's worth of experience working with sharks, sea turtles, tropical fish, penguins, dolphins, sea lions, sea otters, and much more. We discuss her journey working at the Sea Life Park in Hawaii, training dolphins and sea lions for the US Navy, interning at the Shedd Aquarium, and what it took to finally land her dream job. Krissy then talks about fulfilling a lifelong dream: Cage Diving with Great White Sharks in South Africa.
